I started the day reading 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon, which connected nicely with this terms inquiry. The children then had to make their own creature from air-dry clay and found natural objects. They went on to drawing their creatures and had to create an environment for them.
After morning break I did a repeat of yesterdays colaboration project. Each child put their personality into one section of a larger image that they hadn't seen. The children were very excited by this and had just as much enjoyment putting it all together as they had creating them ( Like a jigsaw puzzle without the final image!)
|The final task for the day was to make jigsaws. |
Most took these home to finish in their own time
